Editorial

In a foreign policy haze

USA Secretary of State Rex tillerson is arriving for a visit to India. But, direction of US foreign policy is still not clear. Visit is important as it is the first visit after USA announcing its Afghan policy,

  1. If seen from Indian perspective,  policies announced by Mr Trump for Afghanistan and Iran are at odds with each other.

One of the purposes of Chabahar port is to provide alternate trade route to Afghanistan.
  2. USA policy is not clear on role Pakistan has to play in fight against terrorism in Afghanistan. It did not condemn release of Hafiz saeed and is actively participating in renewed Quadri lateral coordination group.
